Couture recasts the traditional
relationships through which we consider
design. In her photographic renderings of
13 idealised settings, Casey Simms brings to
furniture design and the body a new identity;
portraiture of a unique type.
Dancers on pointe reflect and reinforce the
natural synergy and lines of the chairs of
varying vintages and styles. Simultaneously
drawing similarities whilst highlighting the
differences between the static chair and fluid
body, the project enhances both the body posed
and in repose; positioned and placed with grace
and great beauty.
